Samsung sent out a letter to customers, in which it told about a rather serious security breach that occurred recently.
Samsung said that a security breach in its system led to the potential exposure of customers’ personal information. Although there are not many details about the attack itself, the company noted that the attack took place at the end of July this year, right before the wave of pre-orders for the Fold 4 and Flip 4.
At the end of July 2022, unknown individuals received information from some Samsung systems in the US. On August 4, 2022, during our ongoing investigation, we determined that some customers’ personal information was affected.
The information leak may vary depending on the Samsung customer as this data security breach has not affected everyone in the same way. Names, addresses, dates of birth, and product registration information may have been leaked. The email clearly states that no credit/debit card details were compromised in this attack.
Samsung noted that authorities and third-party experts were involved in studying this attack. Other steps taken include a FAQ page for customers to resolve issues.
This attack only affected US customers.
Young hacker who leaked GTA 6 material denies his guilt
The 17-year-old hacker, who was previously arrested in the UK on suspicion of hacking Rockstar Games and Uber, has pleaded not guilty. According to police, he appeared in court over the weekend, but refused to plead guilty to PC misuse. At the same time, he admitted that he violated the conditions of release on bail. Now he is being held in a juvenile detention center.
According to investigators, the 17-year-old is part of the Lapsus$ hacker group and is behind the recent leak of videos and other details of the $2 billion GTA 6 game.
Earlier, a hacker under the nickname teapotuberhacker published an archive with video and source code from an early version of GTA 6, which has already gone viral. Take-Two tried to stop the spread of the leak, but it was only partially successful.
The hacker also said that it was he who attacked the Uber computer system, gaining access to correspondence, email addresses, and so on.
At the moment, the investigation is ongoing, so it is not yet clear how this story will end.
Cloudflare introduces world’s first eSIM with better security than VPN
Cloudflare has introduced a new solution that may be suitable for smartphone and mobile Internet users. We are talking about an eSIM card called Zero Trust SIM. Its peculiarity is that it provides an increased level of security, reducing the risk of number substitution.
In technical terms, we are talking about the transfer of DNS requests through the Cloudflare gateway, which allows you to protect them from interception and spoofing. Also promised is a check of all intermediate nodes through which the device accesses the Internet.
According to Cloudflare CTO John Graham-Cumming, Zero Trust SIM technology can outperform VPNs and other security systems as it provides cell-level protection.
Zero Trust SIM will launch first in the US, where only a virtual card for iOS and Android will be available at first. When activated, it will bind to a specific device and allow you to protect it. Physical maps are also expected in the future.
The company is also launching Zero Trust for Mobile Operators, an affiliate program for telecom operators that will enable them to offer subscriptions to the services and tools of the Zero Trust platform. In addition, a similar project is expected for the Internet of Things.

London police today announced the capture of a 17-year-old teenager suspected of cybercrime in Oxfordshire. At the moment, it is only reported that the arrested person is in custody.
The police declined to say what caused the arrest, but a number of facts indicate that this particular teenager, associated with the Lapsus$ hacker group, previously hacked into Uber, and recently posted screenshots and videos of GTA 6 gameplay on the Web.
In March, Bloomberg wrote that the person believed to be behind several major network hacks was a 16-year-old teenager whose home is in Oxfordshire. Uber wrote on its blog after the hack: “We believe this attacker (or attackers) is associated with a hacker group called Lapsus$, which is becoming more and more active.” A hacker who posted a GTA 6 video online claimed responsibility for the attack on Uber in forum posts.
